Volume IV – Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner – by Kristian Vistrup Madsen

October 2021

It is when you invite strangers to dinner that you learn the most about your friends. They ask different questions, bring up different topics. I was invited by Sperling to pair one work by an artist from the gallery with something, art or otherwise, from elsewhere. This became a game of impulse and association; a challenge to find a corresponding object to complement and challenge, to bring out in the first object some sidelined aspect, or latent conflict. It has been interesting to realise how coherent the programme is. Torsten Anderson could have been the partner of Veronika Hilger as well as Ana Navas. Malte Zenses's globe giving a blowjob could easily have met Anna McCarthy’s gross Steakbaby. But also the richness of it: just how many directions you can pull the work in, depending on the partner. I hope the host will not mind these plus one’s. I think they make a good party.
